I am cataloging some 18th century republications of the Guardian (1713) 
and the Spectator (1711-1714).  When I look at the schedules, PR1365 is 
for 17-18th century collections of essays and PR1369 is for Special, A-Z, 
e.g. The Englishman, The Guardian, The Rambler, The Spectator, The Tatler.
When I checked LC's practice, there are far more versions of The Guardian 
and The Spectator classed in PR1365 rather than PR1369.

So my questions are which should be used?  What, if any, is the chronology 
of the change, and if PR1369 is to be used, could there be a clear 
reference in the schedule from P1364-1368 to PR1369 and a better caption 
than "Special?"

Thank you,
